I have three samples that just arrived from Levolor. Husband and I disagree about which shade for our white kitchen ( cabinets are a medium cherry finish). Adjacent family room is gray. Forgive the mess.. Light, medium or dark?

Since your walls are all white, I'd go warm, with the darkest color for some contrast.

I'm voting for lightest too - the others have a burgundy undertone in the photo that would clash with the orange undertone in the cherry cabinets.

I lean towards the lightest to keep it bright/soft. Medium looks ok too. Darkest would seem too austere to me. IMHO

I will say the lighter color for sure. I painted a dinning room the darker and My daughter told me to never put that color on a wall again. That color belongs in the toilet. Out of the mouths of my children. Seriously that was the worst wall color ever,

To keep it looking crisp and clean, I vote for the lightest color. It still has warmth being it's not stark white but it won't create such a harsh contrast as the darker colors will.

I think it's safe to say..... You can choose any of them and do no wrong. :)

Good luck.

Hello libratravel,

LIGHT... and bright! No competition with the cabinets and then when you are ready you have the ability to add drapery without conflict.




Best of luck and let us know if we can be of assistance,

If would decide to change your wall colour then having the lightest colour blind would go with so many colours greens, light blue. If you use the dark brown it will limit your wall choices in the future !
